Deputy indicted, fired
Authorities say a Cherokee County sheriff's deputy has been fired after he was indicted on forgery and embezzlement charges. Roger Dale Fine was indicted last week by Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury. He had served as chief of the Peggs Volunteer Fire Department and was a deputy in Cherokee County. Fine was fired Monday from his county job and turned himself in to authorities. He was released on $1,000 bail. The indictment accuses Fine of forging checks from the fire department. He stepped down as fire chief earlier this year. He has called the accusations a “misunderstanding” and says the truth will be revealed with a review of the department's financial records.
